Don't worry, I'm not going to put you TV fans through the wringer like I did with the spoiler of Callie being preggo on Grey's Anatomy. This baby news is far less earth-shattering (unless you happen to be related to me), but all the same, I can come right out right now and tell you that sources confirm to me exclusively:
I'm having a baby. Soon.
You savvy readers who haven't been hitting the sauce may have noticed my byline has been missing recently from this here Watch with What's-Her-Name section. So in case you're wondering, yes, I'm on maternity leave. Yes, I'm popping out another bambino. And yes, this column will keep going strong while I am out, thanks to a group effort of stellar writers/reporters/TV freaks whom I adore. (And that's not just the hormones talking.) So please keep checking Watch with Kristin for all your TV-scoop needs in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, I'm having another boy. And your name suggestions were actually so very helpful last time (with my first-born, Luca Alexander) that my hubby and I are asking for your input again in round two of "Name That Baby Dos Santos." Only guidelines: Must go with Dos Santos. The middle name likely will be Tomaz, a family name on my husband's side. And per my husband, "Sawyer Stefan Damon Raylan Jax Vaughn Jesse Dos Santos" is out, despite my deep desire to pay homage to my favorite fake TV boyfriends. Sniff.
Hit the comments with any ideas! Thanks for playing and I'll letcha know when the new little guy arrives, either here or on Twitter or the nearest rooftop.
